I want to start at the beginning….the beginning of 2012!

It’s a New Year…and I’m finished!!  Finished performing on New Year’s Eve.  I’ve been the entertainment at New Year’s Eve partys for many years…I think every year since I was 18, except one.  I went to a local club with a boyfriend, girlfriends, my Mother, for drinks, dancing and dancing!!!  I’ll never forget it… we all had soo much fun, and my dear Ma (RIP & I can’t wait to see you on the other side) complained how her favorite shoes  got ruined by all the alcohol that was spilled on her as we danced the night away!  Well, that night was a long time ago, 20 years plus, and I’ve worked ever since.  New Year’s Eve’s nights usually started around 6pm and end around 2am, with 3-4 wet costumes in the trunk and a load of cash. Oh…yea!! Good food in abundance! (Lots of to go containers in my back seat)!  So at midnight when everyone is kissing loved ones, I was either racing to next gig, pulled over making a phone call, or sometimes lucky enough to still be at a party or club where others were celebrating and I could join in.  Don’t get me wrong or misunderstand, it was wonderful, and I LOVE bellydancing, but I’m finished performing on New Years Eve!
